The Virginia round-leaf birch was the first tree given protection under the Endangered Species Act. This rare variant was first described by botanist
W.W. Ashe in 1918 as living in a single creek's drainage area.
The single natural population of Virginia round-leaf birch has dwindled down to only eight individuals in 2003.
Reproduction in the wild was last documented in 1981.
While there are nearly 1,000 artificially propagated trees in botanical gardens and the wild, the lack of natural reproduction is the primary reason the tree is still listed today.
Recovery for the Virginia round-leaf birch hinges on the successful natural reproduction and survival of these populations in the wild.--U.S. Fish and Wildife Service
